Again with the suspension of disbelief, but what mystery these days doesn't require it?

A bit of escapism, although I don't know that the writing was great. A bit disjointed at times, and the characters never seemed completely fleshed out - I think you'd have had to read previous novels to understand their background... It was interesting to read a novel about post-Katrina New Orleans though.

From the back cover:

In 2005, hurricane rescue workers made a grisly discovery at the massive refrigerator "graveyards"--six female hands.

Captain Patti O'Shay, a by-the-books cop, is assigned to the case. But with the evidence lost to time and the elements, the heinous incident goes unsolved. The perpetrator, known only as "The Handyman," remains at large.

Two years later, Patti is still haunted by her own personal tragedy--her husband and fellow police captain was murdered in the post-storm chaos. But when a female victim missing her right hand is unearthed, Patti prepares to return to The Handyman investigation. She is unprepared, however, for what she finds at the crime scene--the victim's bones beside her husband's police badge.

Casting aside all the rules, Patti is fearless in her quest to find the truth...because if she isn't, she could become The Handyman's last known victim.
